The ability to listen on more than one IP at a time.

I am using memcached as a common session store for multiple servers
(physical and virtual using FreeBSD jails).  For security, the memcached
server should only listen to the IP addresses of those servers and no
others.  What I do is make it accept all incoming connections and use
IPFW to block anything unknown.  It would greatly simplify these types
of situations if memcached could read in a config file which listed all
IP addresses (or ranges) on which to listen.  That would be my biggest
wishlist item ;-)
